Ontario NDP House Leader Gilles Bisson sent the following letter to Government House Leader Yasir Naqvi.
April 28, 2015
Hon. Yasir Naqvi, MPP
I write in response to your April 23, 2015 letter outlining your government’s proposal to have the Legislature swiftly pass your 2015 budget bill.
New Democrats agree that the budget process plays a key role in the economic health and overall growth of our Province and, as a result, it is essential for Ontarians to have the opportunity to speak to the proposals in this important piece of legislation. Unfortunately, we were dismayed and disappointed by the incredibly brief timelines your government is proposing to discuss this year’s budget bill, a document that features some of the most significant changes to Ontario’s fiscal policy in over a generation.
